BMCO. ALVAH HOLMES. BACK FORTY.
A spring adventure with Alvah Holmes.
The long winter having finally broken, Christina checks back in with her father Alvah, on the family farm in Eaton Rapids, Michigan. In what’s commonly known in these parts as “the back forty”, Christina takes us on an adventure through Alvah’s springtime ritual of foraging for wild edibles, cooking them over the campfire, and ringing in the warm weather with a few cold beers. From harvesting wild ramps, stinging nettles, and garlic mustard, to grilling stuffed white bass on the open flame, Alvah enjoys, in the truest sense, the fruits of a good day’s labor. Bon appétit! ~Peter Buchanan Smith
As always, special thanks to Alvah Holmes. And thanks to Delores Holmes, and Craig Lieckfelt.
